Let me start by giving you a great big hug and sharing the hope that we will come through this season with a greater love and appreciation for the relationships in our lives. This has been a hard couple of months for our world and so many things have changed. My prayer is for grace and mercy through it all.
Continuing to life here: it has been a whoooole lot of the inside of our house. Doodlebug was laid off of both of her jobs, and all lessons and community concerts and events were cancelled, which has been hard for her. I'm starting to like not driving her everywhere! Our car went from the pacific northwest (icy roads and salt to melt the ice) to south Texas (humidity) to not going anywhere (social distancing) so everything rusted on the bottom of it and had to be replaced (rotors, breaks, all things that move and make it safe to drive). My computer crashed, my printer died, and this meant updating all of my software (I miss office 97) and trying to teach this old dog new tricks. There's probably a country song out there that includes all of this stuff ;o) The new programs and printer means reformatting 1000+ pages of charts and that loud thumping sound was my head hitting the desk all day long. Lots and lots of little annoyances BUT we are safe, we are healthy, we are sheltered and we are fed. We are grateful.
Now on to the new stuff :o) With the changes in our world and so much loss from COVID-19, my order of releases has changed a bit. I was oh, so excited about a new sassy one, but it didn't seem appropriate in the light of the struggles and I will delay it for a year or so. The scripture pieces I was working on seemed more timely than ever, so I offer five of those for what I hope will be many hours of peaceful stitching.

Also coming out this month are a couple new accessory items. If you check the website, I do have a bunch of doggy thread keeps listed there (and there are a bunch NOT listed because I haven't made time for the photography yet, but I have them) so please contact me if there is something special I can help with. For this month there are more cats and new clasp needle threaders.
Jeweled Cat Thread Keep - An assortment of modern black and white little cat images with the most beautiful pink, purple and blue accent beads. The cat in the crescent moon charm is adorable!
Praying health and wisdom for you, peace in the struggles, and lots of little x's.
